Suspect leads police on chase following reports of attempted home burglaries in Morris County

HANOVER TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – A person suspected of attempted home burglaries in Hanover Township is in custody following a pursuit early Wednesday morning, according to Hanover Township Police Chief Michael D. Loock.

On Jan. 11, at around 2:30 a.m., police received multiple 911 calls from separate residents reporting someone attempting to break into their home, Loock said.

Officers responded to the area and observed a vehicle, which fled the scene at a high rate of speed. Believing this vehicle to be involved in the attempted burglaries, an officer pursued the suspect’s vehicle through several neighboring towns and ultimately took the suspect into custody, Loock said.

Police were able to determine that the same suspect attempted to break into multiple homes in the Birch Hill section of the township, police said.

Anyone with security video that could assist them in their investigation, is urged to email it to Sgt John Schauder, or Sgt Dominic Kaiser,

“I would like to point out that all of the homes the suspect attempted to break into were locked, which lead to the suspect attempting to use other means to gain entry. This resulted in the residents hearing the actions of the suspect and immediately calling 911,” Loock said.

Police urge residents to continue to lock the doors and windows of not only your homes, but also your vehicles.
